- Place potato and plantain mixture in a large piping bag. Pipe in the centre of the plate. Place crispy shrimp around the mixture. Lightly drizzle with curried carrot sauce.
- Garnish with baked ham and sprig of rosemary.
How to de-vein shrimp: Use a small paring knife (manicure scissors are quite handy) with a point to slit the back side of the shrimp. As you slit the shells you will cut into the meat a bit exposing the vein. Use the tip of the knife to lift the vein, then grasp it with your fingers and discard.
DEGLAZE: after food has been sautéed, a small amount of liquid is added to the pan, loosening browned bits of food on the bottom of the pan.
